If Atheism Were a Religious Faith

As an agnostic (the church of I Don’t Know) atheism and religion share a similar characteristic. The “members” are “sure” of something. Religion is SURE there is a “god” and atheists are SURE there isn’t a “god”.

That’s not true, though.

I’m an atheist. I”m not sure there’s no god. But there is no reason for me to believe in a god, and I never have to resort to god or magic of any sort to explain the world.

I’m also not sure that the universe isn’t a hologram. But I don’t have any reason to believe it is.
